In Acrobat Pro X, there isn't any one option under Save As > Optimised PDF that mentions hyperlinks. I know from past experience that some options, if ticked, will remove hyperlinks from the PDF (I think "discard document tags" was one such option, if I remember right).
Can anyone provide a clear list of the options that will remove live hyperlinks from a PDF - i.e. those options which must be unticked if you want the optimised PDF to contain clickable links?
Thanks for the info, useful to know - though I was also hoping for those options that by design remove hyperlinks.
If anyone already knows, it'd be great to know which of the above five will remove hyperlinks and which will preserve hyperlinks if ticked.
Does nobody know which are the settings that remove hyperlinks?
I'm currently stuck doing blind trial and error, and the results seem inconsistent, which makes me think there's something to do with combinations. Maybe, if the hyperlinks end up implemented one way, certain settings remove them or switch the way they are implemented, and if they end up implemented another way, other different settings remove them.
(Seems like "Discard all comments, forms and multimedia" is one of the ones that might need to be unticked)
Incase any people enjoy giving the RTFM treatment, I'll pre-emptively point out that the manual is very unhelpful here. It just re-states the titles of each option as a sentence, with no additional information.
You need to understand your links to get anywhere with this.
Thanks - but how in Acrobat do I look at them to find out how they are done? I'm guessing it's one of the 'Tools' but they seem to be all specific to one thing, so I'd need to know or have an idea of what the link was to know which tool to use on it.
